Where to start with preschool?

Mandirhinehart - posted on 06/19/2012 ( 3 moms have responded )




My daughter will be three in two weeks. I want to start doing preschool with her. She already knows all of her ABCs, the sounds they make, she is starting to read and can spell her name, knows all the colors and shapes can count to 20+, all thanks to her Daddy teaching her while he was laid. Now I could like to continue teaching her and also refresh her memory since having her little sister. What websites or books should I use? Trying to make it as inexpensive as possible due to a tight budget. Help please!?!? :)

Cumon has fun, inexpensive workbooks that are great for preschool. But most of your school day should be hands on activities and play. Make a weekly trip to the library, check out a basket of books and read to her every day. See if you have a homeschool group in your area that does park play days and check your library for preschool activities. Make it fun and she will love learning as she gets older.

Hi Mandi,
There really is no need at all to buy a preschool curriculum. Anything and everything you could possibly want to teach her can be found on the internet for free. Preschool doesn't need to be regimented, children will learn just as much from interacting with you and discussing day to day activities. Keep it fun and enjoy them when they are this little!

The blog weefolkart.com has a free curriculum for kids 4-5. It is a preK-K curriculum. it requires 12 books and alot of supplemental books but almost all can be found at the library and those that cant you can substitute. it gives great guidance for books to read to your child that help with learning all the science and social studies they need at that age in addition to some great activities ideas. the one for fall is called "HarvestTime". Also starfall.com is free phonics and a great program. I've been homeschooling 5 years and love it. katie sullivan m.s.,SLP-CCC
